These are super cute and I do get compliments on them quite a bit, but I don't love them. I bought these for my second lobe piercing intending to just put them in and leave them alone most of the time. Well, it's a good thing I don't plan to change them often as they are VERY difficult to put in and take out. I mean, I know they are tiny, duh, that's the point, but the two pieces are soooooo tiny that they are very hard to work with. Make sure you are working over a surface where you can easily see a piece if you drop it while putting them in (which you almost certainly will). I had to use a magnifying makeup mirror to get them in. Also, they are not threaded as claimed in the description; I thought maybe the threads were just too small to see, but I checked with a magnifying loupe, they are just push-pin style. For me the posts are still too long, even though I got the shortest ones (6mm) - this means they have a tendency to stick out and get caught on clothes, towels, etc. And they are starting to discolor a bit where they touch my ear - not surprising in the long run, but I was a little surprised after only 2-3 months of wear. I do love the flat back, I can sleep in them without them poking behind my ear, so that's a plus.
